Yes, and that brings up the issue again of just what is common sense and what is patentable. Some would have you believe Apple invented common sense when it comes to design standards.
The patent wars have gotten out of hand. Hopefully the higher courts sort out the issue of design patentability as it relates to technology relatively soon.
